Space Dandy ~ initial impression (and ED by Etsuko Yakushimaru)

Space Dandy stakes his claim.

Space Dandy stakes his claim.

The first episode of Space Dandy turned out to be mostly silliness. As I said in my season preview, this show just doesn’t look like it is going to have the heft that you might expect from Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop).

Meanwhile the Ending theme, sung by Etsuko Yakushimaru was actually quite pleasant, although not as attention-grabbing as her work on, say Mawaru PenguinDrum.

    SPACE! Dandy is a Dandy in space
    i couldn’t ask for anything more personally. and there aren’t many things that could ever top bebop in my eyes. knowing that and moving forward without trying to live up to that standard, taking that weight off of his shoulders i think it does a pretty damn good job. one gaijin’s opinion

      I think that is a fair statement. There’s no reason to recreate the past, and Shinichiro Watanabe should be allowed to move forward; he’s a creative guy and I hope he continues to make anime in the future. Space Dandy still isn’t the show for me, though.
